Thankyou all for your kind efforts in helping me.  I have one other mystery i'm afraid.  Margaret Helena George (listed above as mary elizabeths mother) and on birth certificate lived in walton west, pembrokeshire.  On all the census' i find, it lists her mother as Margaret Griffiths and her father John George.  I have her mothers name listed on her birth certificate as Mary Morgan and correct father, John George!  I'm stumped.  Nowhere can i find John George living with Mary Morgan in Walton West with Margaret Helena as their child. >:(

I can't either  :(


according to latest census they have been married 41 years

This appears to be the marriage entry for

John George to Margaret Griffiths Dec 1869 Haverfordwest 11a 1259

1871 https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:V5BD-S2V
Margaret H age 2 with John & Margaret

1881c https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QKXK-DSFD
Margaret Helene age 13 with John & Margaret

and there’s a

Margaret Griffiths single born Hasguard on 1861 census

Purely speculation as I have no proof to confirm

perhaps Margaret Helena's mother died during/after child birth

Margaret Helena George birth Sep 1868 Haverfordwest

John George married Margaret Griffiths Dec 1869 Haverfordwest

Edited removed death entries for Mary Morgan[/b] as John did marry a Mary Morgan
so she would have died as a Mary George

Definitely possible.  On the birth certificate for Margaret Helena, it does state Mary George formerly Morgan.  I'm thankful for all your help

I have amended my post above and removed the death entries of Mary Morgan
as you have now found a possible marriage for John George  to Mary Morgan

I have found a marriage between John George & a Mary Morgans in 1868 (the same year as the birth of Margaret Helena) so have ordered an marriage certificate as a long shot.

the marriage of John George & Margaret Griffiths 21 Oct 1869 in Hasguard shows John to be a widower. His father was James George, also a farmer.
